Entries for the popular “How hard can it be event” for May the Fourth and Revenge of the Fifth events in 2020 are on sale now.

The website have announced next year’s dates along with a link to purchase an entry to their marathon, half marathon or virtual run event.

The May the Fourth run will take place on Monday 4th May and the details are as follows:

This race will take place in the beautiful Shropshire Hills – this time just outside the town of Cravern Arms.  Each of the laps are 13.1 miles and Set under the backdrop of the Clee Hills, the route will leave the Sun Brewery in the sleepy village of Corfton, and climb upwards via grassy tracks and open farmland to Pinstones before dropping down through ancient woodland towards Westhope.

Competitors will then pick up a single track lane and and old bridle way that crosses a ford before climbing up onto Wenlock Edge. Wenlock Edge is an 18 mile stretch of ancient woodland that was once a coral reef and will be carpeted with bluebells and wild garlic in parts.  The course takes in a section of the Edge before dropping up and down to Flounder’s Folly (aka the now infamous Bump) and joining more bridleways and farmland to bring competitors to the final descent of the brewery. Full Marathon runners will get to enjoy the scenery once again on there second lap as they push for the final hurdle.

The race will start at 10.00am, and there will be a cut off of 7 hours for the full marathon. The bling – although not yet confirmed – could look like this.

The Revenge of the Fifth details are exactly the same, except it will take place on Sunday 3rd May.

Those who wish to take part in both events camping tickets are also available.

Those unable to make the weekend can take part in the virtual run but must book in advance in order to get that awesome bling.
